How To Run Microsoft Edge On Windows 7 or Windows 8

With the release of Windows 10 Microsoft has discontinued Internet Explorer in favor for their new browser Microsoft Edge. But not everybody wants to or can upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 right away. Still sometimes it is necessary to use Microsoft Edge for one task or the other. But how is it possible to run Microsoft Edge without upgrading to Windows 10? In this post I will show how it is possible to run Microsoft Edge on Windows 7 or 8 in 4 easy steps.

1. Download and Install BrowseEmAll

You will need to download the free trial of BrowseEmAll here. After the download is finished install the application.

2. Register your trial

After the installation has completed successfully please start BrowseEmAll and enter your email address to start the free trial.

3. Switch to Live Testing

Now the main screen of the application is opened. Select Live Test at the top left to launch a new instance of Microsoft Edge.

4. Launch Microsoft Edge

In our final step you need to enter the Url and select the Microsoft Edge version you want to launch.

After you clicked the Start Test button BrowseEmAll will automatically download all necessary files from Microsoft and start Microsoft Edge for you.


As you can see it is still possible to run Microsoft Edge versions on Windows 7 or 8. Of course BrowseEmAll also offers support for many other browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer so give it a try sometime.
